Colouring Mary Tavy
We are working on a scheme to plants bulbs on the verges along the A386.  See initial information in Jubilee News No.26.
  

    Mary Tavy Play Day
In 2016 and 2017 Mary Tavy Play Day involved more than 50 kids plus parents and guardians who joined in all the fun - with crafts, sandpit, giant bubbles, cricket and all sorts of other games and activities. 
  
  Flood Equipment
The Jubilee Group received a grant of 2,000 from Devon Communities Together for Flood Resilience Equipment and purchased a range of items including hydro sacks, a pump and much other useful and safety equipment.  It is all housed in a trailer and is ready to be used by anyone in the community when the need arises.  The equipment has proved very useful and has been put to good use.
  
  Footpaths
We are working towards creating a map of some of the 25 footpaths in Mary Tavy, and also for put up signage giving points of historical and widlife interest.

Past Projects
 
 

Bonfire Night
Bonfire Night was a Jubilee Group initiative and over five years become established as an important annual event for the village, and it also helped to raise funds for other village projects.  It was held in the Mary Tavy Recreation Ground, and the Jubilee Group invited the Recreation Ground Trustees to become joint organisers.  In 2018 the Recreation Ground unilaterally decided to take Bonfire Night as its own project.  This is explained in an article in Jubilee News No.26.

     
 

Garden projects
Our plans to create an ornamental vegetable Community Garden were halted with the sad death of the project leader.  However there are currently plans for the creation of allotments within Mary Tavy.

     
   Your Community Matters
A very successful community event was held in September 2015 bringing together all clubs, groups and businesses in the parish, along with some arts and sports activities and other entertainment.
     
  Litter Pick
The Jubilee Group and the Parish Council undertook a Litter Pick in 2015 and a Village Spring Clean in 2016.
     
  Blackdown Garage Site
The Jubilee Group asked the site owner for permission to tidy up the site, to weed it and do some new planting.  Read all about it in Newsletter No.10.  The planting in tyres was moved to the Recreation Ground when development started on the site.
     
  Kids' Play Area
In 2015 the Jubilee Group helped the Trustees of The Recreation Ground to get the Kids' Play Area open again after being closed for a year.  We undertaken further sprucing-up sessions in 2016.
